What began as the "Daytona Beach Community Fund" in 1941 has grown into today's United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties, raising funds for our partner agencies. There is no other charity like United Way. We combine over 50 fund-raisers into one, saving the community-and our agencies-time and money that is better spent helping people. We constantly bring local volunteers and community leaders together to identify and solve local problems.
